investigations, she's joined with john mccain and lindsay graham in raising serious questions about that on the national security front. and, actually, her presence there as a strong conservative voice on benghazi and other security issues has counterbalanced hillary clinton's very strong voice when she was secretary of state. so very interesting. uma: what do you think the men come away with from knowing that they are being watched very carefully by the women in this? it can no longer be simply an old boy network. >> yeah. i think the dynamic there has changed too where the men who have serve inside that body for a long time are now used to it. you know, they tell stories, women senators tell the stories when they fist have gotten there, you know, somebody on the senate floor will say, oh, no, this desk is for a senate. kelly ayotte tells the story she turns around, yes, i am a u.s. senator.

't see where republicans doing anything to stop that when you have john baner and paul ryan saying the debt isn't an immediate crisis. doesn't that provide the asylum for these guys to run free in? >> we do not disagree. i have been the first to jump out and say the house republic runs and the senate republicans are not doing enough. look, this budget by the democrats would increase taxes by $1.2 trillion. this is an opportunity for house republicans to say, no way. not only is it increasing spending but it's also increasing taxes. i thought the increased taxes would maybe go to taking care of some of the deficit. no. it's simply going to continually expanding the size and scope of dot government, and those taxes are on families, just like obamacare is placing taxes on family. you do not hear the republican leadership saying we're the defenders of the american family, of businesses. we want to unleash this economy so that it will absolutely grow. by the way, about that easter egg hunt. why, if they're going to haste do they even put it on the tickets they were threatening to stall
